Overview

Research Interests

  • The role of extracellular vesicles in the spreading of Alzheimer's disease
    I am investigating the role of extracellular vesicles in the spreading of Alzheimer’s disease. My current project aimed at demonstrating trans-synaptic migration of tau-containing exosomes and the analysis of how exosomal tau seeds meet and induce misfolding in the cytoplasmic tau of recipient cells.
